October has begun, leaving us with those first feelings of cooler weather and the promise of the upcoming holiday season.
Keep that autumn cheer rolling by visiting Council Bluffs for a festive fall weekend! From orchards and pumpkin patches to scenic overlooks to haunted jails and escape rooms, we have something for everyone this fall season.
1. Ditmars Orchard & Vineyard
An afternoon at Ditmars can be spent apple picking, wine tasting, snacking (two words: nacho taters), pumpkin picking, or just taking in the scenery at one of their picnic tables. The orchard even hosts live music on select days.
2. Welch’s Pumpkin Patch
Pick a pumpkin fresh from the field at Welch’s. One of their best features is how much room they have for kids to run around and just be, well, kids.
3. Pioneer Trail Orchard & Pumpkin Patch
Visit Pioneer Trail Orchard & Pumpkin Patch for pumpkin picking, a creepy walk through a haunted house, apple picking, and more. Check out their calendar for Halloween fun coming up this October.
4. Lewis & Clark Monument Scenic Overlook
5. The Cryptic Room
For those looking for Halloween fun without a scare, The Cryptic Room is a perfect choice! This escape room is great for groups and features four rooms to choose from. Now the only question is, can you escape in time?
6. Historic Squirrel Cage Jail
The Historic Squirrel Cage Jail is said to be haunted, and there’s only one way to find out. Flashlight tours are offered on select days in October, but less brave folks can tour the jail during their normal daylight hours—you know, when the lights are on.
